In the latest chapter of the Married at First Sight novel, Gu Lingfei faces a challenging situation. Old Mr. Hunt, unfamiliar with the workings of the internet, expresses concern about the falsehoods spread by his grandson on Twitter. Worried that his granddaughters, Serenity and Liberty, might expose the truth and jeopardize their family’s reputation and financial security, he suggests an unconventional approach.
The Hunt’s Cunning Plan
Old Mrs. Hunt chimes in, suggesting a devious strategy to shield Serenity and Liberty from potential backlash. She proposes hiring trolls to flood the internet with nasty comments and scandalous information about Serenity and Liberty. By doing so, the netizens would immediately dismiss any attempts made by the sisters to clarify the situation online.
To reinforce their plan, Old Mr. Hunt instructs his grandson, Mike, to call Serenity and insist that she delivers the money they demand. They believe that threatening to delete the trending tweet in exchange for a substantial sum of six hundred thousand dollars will force Serenity’s hand. They are confident that she would not want to face public outrage, while Liberty’s financial situation is seen as less stable due to her family commitments.
A Calculated Move
However, Mike asserts that they should not initiate contact with the sisters. He believes that the tweet’s popularity will eventually force Serenity and Liberty to reach out to them. Old Mr. Hunt reluctantly agrees, realizing the importance of letting the sisters make the first move.
The Change in Appearance
Old Mrs. Hunt raises an interesting point about the sisters’ recognition. She suggests that people may not identify them easily since the photo used in the tweet is over a decade old. She adds that Liberty now resembles her mother, while Serenity takes after her father. There is an air of hopelessness in Mike’s response as he reveals that this outdated picture is the only one they have since the sisters lost touch after they turned eighteen. The sisters have likely changed significantly since then.
A Dwindling Trend
Mike’s frustration grows as he observes the tweet dropping in the Trend ranking. It falls further when he refreshes the webpage. Concerned, Old Mr. Hunt anxiously questions him about the tweet’s declining popularity. Mike explains that netizens who personally know Serenity and Liberty started defending them as the story went viral. Unfortunately for the Hunts, another viral tweet about the wealthy heir of Wilt spoon and the heiress to StoneGroup, Elisa Stone, stole the limelight from their story.
Fueled by anger, Elisa uses her influence to demote the Hunts’ tweet, effectively pushing it to the bottom of the trending list. Mike realizes that the only solution is to seek assistance from his media friends to share the tweet and ensure it reaches a wider audience.
Serenity and Zachary’s Return
As the story progresses, Serenity and Zachary finally arrive back in the city. Zachary suggests grabbing dinner at a restaurant before visiting Serenity’s sister. Serenity agrees wholeheartedly, impressed by the way Zachary handles things and the trust he has instilled in her throughout the day. She appreciates his considerate and perceptive nature, ensuring she never goes hungry.
The couple selects a table by the window in a fine-dining restaurant and places their order. Suddenly, Zachary’s phone rings, displaying “Nana” on the screen. Nana seems concerned that Serenity has turned off her phone and asks Zachary about her whereabouts.
